    I posted this in the Fascinate sub-forum with no response. So I figured I would post here as well.

    I have a Linksys n router and EarthLink broadband that averages 18-22Mbps down and 10Mbps up on both my laptop and gaming rig.

    No matter what I do the fastest I can get my Fascinate to run is about 1.6-1.8Mbps down and, get this, about 3Mbps upload.

    What am I doing wrong? Shouldn't I be really smokin' on both up and down on WiFi?

    By the way, my router is about 5 feet from where I have done a lot of my home surfing.

    If I were standing right next to an "n " router
    on a 50 Gbps fiber backbone and pinging a local gigabit server, what would be the Fascinate's top speed, and what would be the bottleneck ?

    Are you using the speedtest app?

    Yes I am. But I also use another speed test.

    I found a chart that shows the Fascinate could hit 20Mbps.

    After a ton of research and troubleshooting I fixed my issue.

    Turned to be an easy fix. Changed a router setting and BANG, fast DL. Had to set wireless from mixed to either "G" or "N" only. For some reason "mixed" would confuse the phone and limit it all the way down to 1.5Mbps DL.
